Tonight we say goodbye to The Office. Throughout its nine seasons we’ve all laughed, cried, cringed and at some point near the latter half of the series said it’s not as good as it used to be. Still, since March 24, 2005 the show has captivated us all and produced some of the best comedic moments in the history of television. To celebrate those nine seasons before tonight’s finale I’ve picked nine things I love about the show. These aren’t the best moments or my absolute favorite. They are just the first nine things that popped into my head, and trust me it took a split second to think of nine.
This quote by Michael Scott
I’ll always remember Michael’s sage advice.
“Did I stutter?!”
I’ve always loved Stanley. He’s most definitely my favorite minor character and I often repeat this classic Stanley line. Michael’s reaction is priceless.
Jim and Pam
Specifically all of their glances toward each other before they officially became a couple. Seriously, I think this relationship makes us all swoon.
I guess this is another Stanley moment. But this entire episode is a gem. Probably a favorite for life.
This cringe worthy kiss
Only on The Office is sexual harassment funny.
“That’s What She Said”
All of them. Seriously. Never gets old.
Dwight vs. Jim
I think I’ve blown up the pranks in my head to be a bigger deal than they actually are. A lot of them are so genius because they’re done in passing and not made too big of a deal. My favorite one is still probably the vending machine one.
Parkour and Planking
Two fads that the show tackled beautifully.
This song that made me cry like a baby
Hopefully tonight’s episode reminds us all why we fell in love with the Scranton crew.
